Local Exterminators Say Bedbugs Still A Problem
APPLETON-- Those tiny blood-sucking parasites known as bedbugs are spreading in Wisconsin.
It’s been 2 years since health department officers say bedbug infestation peaked in our area. But local exterminators say they’re seeing an increase in calls to treat the problem.
Bedbug complaints to the Outagamie County Health Department are declining slightly according to department officers. But county leaders admit they do not individually track bedbug complaints. Complaints about bedbugs are grouped together with other insect and rodent complaints. It is not required by law to report bedbug sightings.
